Earthquakes are slamming Alaska today as the Solar Storm continues to pummel the earth with geomagnetic activity. 

This morning a Magnitude 6.3 Earthquake struck the  ANDREANOF ISLANDS, ALEUTIAN IS., ALASKA. at 2010 August 04 12:58:24 UTC http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2010znbf.php

6.3M is nothing to shake a stick at. 

HAARP’s magnetometers were fairly calm until the start of the solar storm, kicked off by Sunspot 1052.  It is now picking up significant anomalies in the magnetosphere.  The three traces represent mutually orthogonal components of the earth’s magnetic field as follows:

  • The “H” component (black trace) is positive magnetic northward
  • The “D” component (red trace) is positive eastward
  • The “Z” component (blue trace) is positive downward

HAARP Magnetometer Chain

Real-time monitoring of the Earth’s magnetic field, Data for research and practical application from USGS  is showing major spikes from Alaska all the way to Guam. You can view the real time data at  http://geomag.usgs.gov/realtime/, which supposedly demonstrates a wide dispersal of geomagnetic energy affecting far apart distances. 

As we grab for our tinfoil hat, the Station- CMO Fairbanks, AK, located at 25.13°/212.14° at 197 meters, went OFFLINE BEFORE the quake hit.  It was picked up at almost all reporting stations including as far as the station at SJG, Cayey, PR,71.89°/293.85°, 424 meters.

Scientifically,we are under a solar storm alert, all be it, a supposed minor one.   http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/SWN/index.html NOAA Alerts / Bulletins
Latest Alert: Aug 04 1032 UTC ALERT: Geomagnetic K-index of 5.  Yesterday in was an index of 4.

Spacequakes have been going on for sometime in our universe, but now we have a model prediction thanks to the satellites circling the Sun. 

In 2007, THEMIS discovered the precursors of spacequakes. The action begins in Earth’s magnetic tail, which is stretched out like a windsock by the million-miles-per-hour solar wind. Sometimes the tail can become so stretched and tension-filled, it snaps back like an over-torqued rubber band.

Solar wind plasma trapped in the tail hurtles toward Earth. On more than one occasion, the five THEMIS spacecraft were in the line of fire when these “plasma jets” swept by. Clearly, the jets were going to hit Earth. But what would happen then? The fleet moved closer to the planet to find out.

“Now we know,” said THEMIS project scientist David Sibeck of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. “Plasma jets trigger spacequakes.”

According to THEMIS, the jets crash into the geomagnetic field some 18,600 miles (30,000 km) above Earth’s equator. The impact sets off a rebounding process, in which the incoming plasma actually bounces up and down on the reverberating magnetic field, akin to a tennis ball bouncing up and down on a carpeted floor. The first bounce is a big one, followed by bounces of decreasing amplitude as energy is dissipated in the carpet.  http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/yahoocanada/100728/canada/violent_spacequakes_shake_earth_from_above

If plasma bounces up and down on the reverberating magnetic field after it crashes someplace above the equator, could it have bounced on over to Alaska to cause this earthquake and the one earlier today- Magnitude 6.4 – EASTERN NEW GUINEA REG, PAPUA NEW GUINEA,  2010 August 04 07:15:33 UTC http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2010znav.php?

That’s a pretty big bounce.

If the satellites can observe CME’s from the Sun, is there nothing NASA has available to track where the plasma impact occurs on Earth? 

Could this solar alert provide a perfect covert opportunity for advanced weapons experiments using SCALAR weapons?  What are the chances that a station goes off line in the vicinity of an earthquake before one hits?  Could HAARP have fired a beam up to heat the ionosphere causing the quake?

What of Accelerator-based experiments shooting particles through the Earth? A solar storm is the perfect storm to attempt some new experiment that could cause of quakes and disruptions.

The neutrinos are generated at CERN when a proton beam from the Super Proton Synchrotron strikes a target, producing pions and kaons. These quickly decay, giving rise mainly to νμ that pass unhindered through the Earth’s crust towards Gran Sasso. The appearance and subsequent decay of a τ in the OPERA experiment would provide the telltale sign of νμ to ντ oscillation through a charged-current interaction. http://cerncourier.com/cws/article/cern/43178

Recall that the San Grasso Lab was almost ground zero for the Italy Quake!

While this solar storm seems minor, millions of people are getting there first opportunity to see the aurora borealis with a wider than normal viewing area depending on the weather

Auroral Activity Extrapolated from NOAA POES

With all that energy, could a wormhole form due to the magnetic properties of the north pole, interacting with the solar winds?  Shall we send our politicians for a look?

While Alaska and New Guinea are rattling, finally at BP at the  Deep Water Horizon Oil Spill in The Gulf of Mexico, “claimed “a significant milestone” in efforts to plug a leaking well for good on Wednesday ahead of a U.S. government report that will show most of the spilled crude is already gone.

“The good news is that the vast majority of the oil appears to be gone,” Carol Browner said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

 A New York Times story said the report would show three-quarters of the oil released has already evaporated, dispersed, been captured or eliminated. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/reuters/100804/n_top_news/cnews_us_oil_spill

This too shall pass.  Until the next disaster, earthquake, experiment, etc.

As a Solar Storm is heading to Earth, the conspiracy rattles on with reports of high magnitude earthquakes and unusual Magnetometer chart readings from HAARP and USGS. 

Magnitude 5.3 – SOUTHWEST OF SUMATRA, INDONESIA 2010 August 03 08:03:18 UTC http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2010zmat.php

Magnitude 5.0 – OFFSHORE TARAPACA, CHILE  2010 August 03 05:29:21 UTC http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2010zmaq.php

Magnitude 6.3 – MOLUCCA SEA 2010 August 03 12:08:26 UTC http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2010zma4.html

Magnitude 5.4 – TAJIKISTAN 2010 August 03 16:26:27 UTC http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2010zmbf.php

Yadda, yadda.  There are earthquakes everyday, but it is not everyday that the Sun hurls giant Coronal Mass Ejections towards the Earth’s magnetosphere.  On August 1st, a flare, shockwave, filament eruption and CME erupted on the Earth-facing side of the sun.  The CME is heading directly for us — see the SOHO video of the CME.  The storms arrival time? August 3rd, 2010, TODAY.

Solar Sunspot 1092. Image: Oleg Toumilovitch, July 31st, rising over Blairgowrie, South Africa.

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) and the NASA/ESA Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) detected the C3-class solar flare, sunspot #1092.

After sunset,  look west and you will see Venus, Saturn, and Mars have converged to form a triangle.  You will also see the Summer Triangle – technically an asterism, rather than a constellation – formed by the stars Vega, Altair and Deneb.  (https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/08/01/illuminati-triangle-in-the-sky/)  

Scientists said residents of northern regions — possibly including Seattle, as well as parts of Michigan and Maine — may see an unusual display of the aurora borealis, the northern lights. http://www.mercurynews.com/top-stories/ci_15661076?nclick_check=1

NOAA forecasters estimated a 10% chance of major geomagnetic storms and a 45% chance of at least some geomagnetic activity when the clouds arrive on August 3rd and 4th. via http://spaceweather.com/  Wouldn’t you like nearly 50% odds of hitting the lottery? 

Translation, we’ve got a 50% chance that we’re going to have some geomagnetic activity that may or may not cause satellite interference and communications malfunctions here on earth.   The earth, so delicately balanced also relies on the magnetosphere and ionosphere to protect it from upheaval.  NOAA / Space Weather Prediction Center reassures us all is calm, all is bright, all is all right.

Alerts / Bulletins
Latest Alert: Aug 03 1827 UTC WARNING: Geomagnetic K-index of 4 expected
Last Advisory Bulletin: None in last 7 days.

It would seem likely that if the Earth’s atmospheric magnets are going out of whack so is the Earth, and possibly the cause of an increase in earthquakes and volcanoes.

The scientists will tell you about plate tectonics causing earthquakes.  Most recently is a new theory out of  Purdue University.

Earthquakes, “came from stored stress built up in the Earth’s crust long ago…Our theory links an external climate-driven process, the melting of the ice sheet, and earthquakes…Unfortunately, this stored stress is invisible to us.” via US News & World Report Science at  http://ht.ly/18pBTL

That’s one theory.  No matter, all the Earth’s Observatories should be in ready, set, go, mode to record some impressive atmospheric activity..

We’ve asked  it time and time again if the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Project (HAARP), is a scientific advance of  knowledge or a system of destruction capable of causing earthquakes, tsunami, and otherwise “natural disasters?” https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/01/18/haiti-earthquake-conspiracy-haarp-patents-arecibo/.  What about EISCAT, SURA and the worlds other large arrays?  Do you think they only receive and not emit?

The Arecibo Observatory is the largest and most sensitive radiotelescope.  It sits atop the seismically active Puerto Rico Trench, and ever so close to Haiti.    You can download data from the Arecibo dual-frequency ASHTECH MicroZ-CGRS GPS receiver and high quality choke-ring antenna.  http://www.naic.edu/aisr/GPSTEC/gpstec.html.   Sadly, it offers no real time data and is only up to releasing the 90th day of the year’s activity. A lot of good that does for now.

What are the volcano’s doing?  The  SI / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report  doesn’t come out until tomorrow.   http://www.volcano.si.edu/reports/usgs/

Would ya look at those Spikes in the last hour or so!  The impressive thing is that the spikes are being picked up at ALL of the Stations.  http://geomag.usgs.gov/realtime/

Let’s have a look at what our tax dollars are buying at HAARP.

HAARP Fluxgate Magnetometer, August 3, 2010.

The chart above is a running 36 hour plot of the readings taken from the fluxgate magnetometer, built by the University of Alaska, Geophysical Institute, operating at the HAARP ionospheric observatory in Gakona, Alaska. The three traces represent mutually orthogonal components of the earth’s magnetic field as follows:

  • The “H” component (black trace) is positive magnetic northward
  • The “D” component (red trace) is positive eastward
  • The “Z” component (blue trace) is positive downward

Hmmm, looks like a split in the road between the red and the black.  We have never seen such an anomaly at the same time.  There is only one positive North.  Here something is creating two positives at the same time.

Is that possible?  We are positively confused.

More confusing, shortly after uploading these graphs, lo and behold, another earthquake. http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Quakes/us2010zmby.php

A full-disk multiwavelength extreme ultraviolet image of the sun taken by SDO on March 30, 2010

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, SDO the space telescope designed to study the sun released it’s first images this week and they are spectacular.

Launched on February 11th from Cape Canaveral, the observatory has spent the past two months moving into a geosynchronous orbit and activating its instruments. As soon as SDO’s telescope doors opened, the spacecraft began beaming back scenes so beautiful and puzzlingly complex that even seasoned observers were stunned, reported NASA.

“The Helioseismic Magnetic Imager (HMI) is performing splendidly,” reports HMI principal investigator Phil Scherrer of Stanford University. “We’re getting very high-quality, high signal-to-noise data.”

The Extreme UV Variability Experiment (EVE) is online, too, “and we’re getting great data as well,” says principal investigator Tom Woods of the University of Colorado, Boulder.

EVE monitors the sun where it is most variable—in the extreme UV part of the electromagnetic spectrum. At these wavelengths, the brightness of the sun can rise and fall a hundredfold in the blink of an eye, heating and “puffing up” Earth’s upper atmosphere, and dragging down satellites. EVE measures these changes with unprecedented time and spectral resolution.  http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2010/21apr_firstlight/

HMI and EVE and the entire SDO seems to be operating splendidly, but unfortunately it took three weeks for NASA to reveal any images. Unprecedented time should allow for real time images, but us mere earthlings will have to wait another month for daily images.  The implications of such detailed events on the sun will surely have this tinfoil hat wearing observer looking to coordinate data, to earth events like volcano’s and earthquakes.

The observatory is still being commissioned, and a good deal of testing and calibration remains to be done before regular, daily images become available in mid-May.

SOHO MDI Image. A bald sun for today.

Spotless Days
Current Stretch: 8 days
2010 total: 15 days (13%)
2009 total: 260 days (71%)
Since 2004: 785 days
Typical Solar Min: 485 days via http://www.spaceweather.com/

All looks calm on the sun today, unless you look at the images from STEREO from behind. 

Itunes offers a free app for SOHO (SOHO Viewer) and also STEREO (3D Sun) and for $1.99 the Solar Monitor app is well worth it in providing additional information with the images.  All three are in near real time.

Someone needs to comes up with an application that links solar activity to earthquakes and volcano’s, but it won’t be me.  Maybe take it farther to coordinate with seismographs around the world?

If one exists, do tell or share your favorite app or link in the comment section for space and science news.

While the sun has had no sunspots for 8 days, here on the 3rd planet  from the sun, Earth is still tumultuous.

There have been three 5+M Earthquakes this morning alone: Bio Bio Chile 5.9M, Eastern New Guinea 5.3M, Guam 5.4.

The Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland has ongoing eruptions. http://en.vedur.is/Much of Europe air travel seems to be operational, either flying above or below the invisible ash cloud. The Shiveluch, and Kliuchevskoi volcano’s in Russia are showing increased seismic activity and increased thermal anomalies as well. 

The Global Disaster Alert and Coordination System provides near real-time alerts about natural disasters around the world at http://www.gdacs.org/ 

A pat on the back to The Solar Dynamics Observatory team.  Now get busy so we can see what’s going on up there, because down here the Earth sure seems pissed.  

Mmmm, I wonder if you turned the SDO toward earth for images what we would discover. 

Don’t for forget about the LYRID METEOR SHOWER: It peaked yesterday, April 22nd and is caused by the Earth passing through a stream of debris from Comet Thatcher (C/1861 G1). The best time to look is during the hours before dawn.

 jan222008

The sun has just about set, bringing another day to a close.   This morning’s sun of  April 8th featured Birkat Hachamah, the Jewish ritual of “Blessing the Sun” which occurs every 28 years.  According to Talmudic tradition, the Sun was created on the fourth day, which was a Wednesday.  In Roman times the new year began on the day of the vernal equinox, which fell on March 25 some 2400 years ago. http://www.usno.navy.mil/USNO/tours-events/sky-this 

According to rabbinic tradition, on this day the sun is in the exact position it occupied at the time of Creation. And that, as with almost everything else in Judaism, is cause for a blessing.  Tonight is also Passover in this year 5769 (2008-2009).

It is a simple prayer- The text of the blessing itself is as follows:

“ברוך אתה ה’ אלהינו מלך העולם עושה מעשה בראשית”
Blessed are You, LORD, our God, King of the Universe who makes the works of Creation.

Most religions mark the time in a sacred way.  40 days of lent, the 40 day flood, etc. Counting the solar years in increments of 28 is just one more way of marking a new beginning- a rebirth.

“At a time of growing concern over global warming, birkat hachama has found new resonance. In many synagogues, the special blessing — only one sentence long — will be accompanied by recitations of the ways in which the congregation is harnessing solar power and generally, assuming environmentally friendly policies.”  http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123872560930985495.html

I believe in the power of the sun for growth, warmth and spirituality, but pausing for “the birth of the sun,” gives me  little evidence of consequence to fossil fuel consumption or global warming.  In fact, it pisses me off that I will soon be required to purchase mercury laden, compact fluorescent light bulbs- CF’L’s, energy saving, cancer causing light bulbs.

“The blessing is an affirmation of God, not as creator, but as the power that keeps the universe in existence,” said Rabbi J. David Bleich, an expert on the holiday who wrote a book on the subject. “God didn’t just create the universe, then go on an eternal sabbatical. He’s like a generator of electricity: If it doesn’t keep on working, the lights go out.” http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?pagename=JPost/JPArticle/ShowFull&cid=1238562942983

With due respect, time for lights out and bed.  You could dream of, “the potential effects of intense solar Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) on the earth and an ever-growing awareness of the possibility of extreme geomagnetic storms seem to rekindle interest in the so-called ‘Carrington Event’ of 1859, when “skies all over planet Earth erupted in red, green, and purple auroras”, causing severe damage to the telegraph networks of the time. Between then and 1958, altogether 6 well-documented auroras were strong enough to be visible within 30º or indeed 20º of the equator. http://xenophilius.wordpress.com/2009/04/08/the-coming-of-the-sky-dancers/.

God willing, we will rise to see tomorrow’s sunrise. For planet viewing check out  http://stardate.org/nightsky/planets/
